21 Sexy BDSM Love Quotes About D/S Relationships To Make You Purr

It’s getting seriously hot in here …

When most people imagine BDSM relationships, their thoughts jump to images of “50 Shades Of Grey”, bondage, abuse, blood and/or demeaning objectification.

Relationships within the world of BDSM — an acronym meaning Bondage/Discipline, Dominance/submission, and Sadism/Masochism — vary widely.

So while yes, some of those descriptors apply to some BDSM relationships, they certainly do not apply to all, and certainly not without the consent, interest, desire and fulfillment of both partners in mind at all times.

At the core of any relationship — vanilla, kinky, friendly, casual, or even professional — is an “exchange of power.”

In fact, many traditional marriages falter because of a lack of communication in regard to this dynamic.

Prior to an engagement and wedding, each individual has an idealized vision of how power will be exchanged within their marriage.

Some imagine a 50/50 division of household, financial and parenting responsibilities. Some imagine a traditional household à la the 1950s, with the husband taking on financial obligations and the wife taking on child-rearing and household duties, or vice versa. Some imagine shared financial duties between spouses, with a nanny and housekeeper taking care of everything at home.

The variations are endless.

None of these arrangements are inherently good or bad. The trouble arises when a couple marries or otherwise makes a long-term commitment without having expressed these perspectives and ideas to each other beforehand.

The common fall-back of “We love each other, so we’ll make it work” basically guarantees a trip to divorce court.

BDSM relationships can be particularly satisfying because, when consciously formed, there is direct and ongoing communication about roles and responsibilities.

Whether the relationship takes the shape of Dom/sub, Domme/sub, Daddy/babygirl, Master/pet, Master/slave, Master/servant, Top/bottom or anything else you could probably think of, the keys to success are the intrinsic trust, transparency and shared control which must be present at all times.

And, of course, on a purely primal level, these dynamics played out in the bedroom are just so damn hot.

If you can read these 21 BDSM love quotes representing the best and hottest of D/s relationships without steaming up the windows, hey, that’s cool! To each their own.

(But I have a teeny, tiny feeling you may just like what you see …)

1. “When a man truly loves a woman she becomes his weakness. When a woman truly loves a man he …

20 Cute, Funny Love Quotes For Him To Make Your Boyfriend Laugh Again After A Fight

We can all forgive and forget, right?!

Phew! That was a close one! Another fight with the boyfriend or hubby and things may not resolve like they did the last time.

Fights between couples can be so scary. Before you know it, someone is using the b-word … (The b-word as in breakup, duh! What were you thinking?)

Anyway, I’m sure you have that one friend — or maybe you are guilty of this — who is always saying that she and her true love almost broke up last night.

For many couples, even those who are deeply in love, arguments are a common occurrence. (Unless, of course, you are one of the lucky few with that beautiful, smooth sailing kind of relationship and the two of you never fight. In which case, good. for. you. You are an alien.)

The reality is that most, if not all, couples fight occasionally, and usually it’s not that big of a deal. Fights are a normal way for each of you to get things off your chests and speak your minds.

It can even be therapeutic, and not every fight has to mean you’re breaking up — especially if you know how to calm things down by sharing some cute love quotes that will make you both smile.

Listen, no one is perfect and sometimes picking a fight for the fun of it is more entertaining than watching another episode of Fixer Upper. Okay, maybe not fun, per se, but honestly when you’re around someone for an extended period of time, things are bound to go downhill at some point.

Whether you are having petty fights over what show to watch next or have serious relationship issues that need intervention, sometimes you just need to relieve the tension. Especially if you live with your beau!

And sometimes the best thing to do after a long, exhausting fight is share a good laugh!

That’s right — have a good ol’ chuckle and before you know it you’re back on the couch and cuddling like nothing ever happened.

Okay, maybe not that quickly, but it’s totally possible to get back on the horse with your boo faster than you think. It doesn’t have to be all cold shoulders and awkward silences until someone wants to eat. It really is possible to make up and move on.

Now, I am not saying making jokes and …

50 Radical Quotes About Patience That Teach Us How To Be Patient In Love & In LIfe

Take a breath and look at the big picture.

Peace of mind is something many of us aspire to attain. We crave peace in a world full of chaos.

There are moments in our lives where a test of patience arrives too many times to account for. And it is not a pretty sight for those of us who are just learning how to walk side by side with our new friend, patience.

The quote “patience is a virtue” has been a well-known phrase that is often thrown at those who don’t necessarily understand what it means to sit back and chill before attacking their opponent.

Throughout different times in our lives, some situations deserve longevity. However, we should not expect things to quickly resolve themselves, nor should we expect a result two seconds after completing a task.

This is a “we want it now” generation and it has caused a number of people, myself included, to not understand the rewarding gift of waiting for something good to happen. How do we learn when to relax and let any problems or positive expectations run their natural course?

Well, the first step should be to openly admit we are an impatient human race. If we continually allow ourselves to demand something to happen right now, we will never truly value what it is we desire. Life does not wait for anyone, just like there is no specific time when things need to be done.

Maybe the reason you are not getting your dream job is that you’re simply not ready for the role. Trust me, when the time comes for that special moment, you will be ready.

If you need some guidance for maintaining your patience through difficult moments, this article was meant for you. These radical patience quotes remind us why it’s important to be patient in all aspects of our lives — and especially so with our relationships and our partners.

So look to our collection of the best quotes about patience to read when you’re learning how to calm yourself down.

1. One minute of patience…

“One minute of patience, ten years of peace.”— Greek proverb

2. Rome wasn’t built in a day!

“Have patience, my friend, have patience; For Rome wasn’t built in a day! You wear yourself out for nothing In many and many a way! Why are you nervous and fretty When things …

25 Famous Karl Barth Quotes Every Theologian Should Know

One of the most influential theologians of all time

Karl Barth was a famous theologian who wrote many books including theological summa Church Dogmatics.

Why is Karl Barth one of the greatest theologians of all time?

He grew up in Switzerland and came from a religious household. From a young age, he was passionate and determined to study theology.

Barth met a man named Martin Rade and joined a sect of German liberal theology. He served as a pastor in Geneva for a couple of years, and in 1911 he returned to Bible studying it and analyzing text.

He later met with Christian socialist and started to develop a sympathy to the industrial workers that he felt were exploited by the textile owners of the factories, many of them go to his church.

Karl Barth not only helps them but preaches it at mass which leads him to lose people and support in the congregation.

During the outbreak of World War 1 many theologians in Germany sided with the Kaiser (King) which left him shocked, he couldn’t see why they would support someone like that.

He starts to see it as an immoral action and starts to think about what is leading these theologians to believe war is necessary. He felt that the foundation of their beliefs is the root cause of their support for the war.

He decided by writing his most notorious edition of the Epistle to the Roman (1919). He decided in the summer of 1916 to write a commentary on Paul’s Epistle to the Romans as a way of rethinking his theological inheritance.

He attempted to restructure Protestant theology. His work included saving the grace of God and humanity’s inability to know God outside of God’s revelation in Christ.

Many read into Bart’s books and see it as negative but in large part, his readings do portray God as acting in graciously ways in the world.

In honor of his teachings and philosophy lets go over some of his most noteworthy quotes. These are the best Karl Barth quotes of all time.

1. God chooses for us to be free

“The doctrine of election is the sum of the gospel because of all words that can be said or heard it is the best: that God elects man; that God is for man to the one who loves in freedom.” — Karl Barth

50 Relationship Quotes To Help You Make It Through Quarantine Together

Living room fort anyone?

Relationships are the best thing since sliced bread. With billions of people on this rotating rock we call home, it is an almost impossible notion to think there is one person out there who was made for us. One person to laugh with, one person to cry with, one person to travel the world with, forever.

The wait for that special someone to appear in your life can seem like a dreaded million years. Once the moment comes, you will least expect it! Finding your “one” is a long process for a reason. Spending the rest of your life with one person seems scary, but if you have the right person by your side, it will be an awfully fun adventure.

Social distancing regulations are in effect as millions of people are staying home to contain the virus from spreading.

These are very uneasy times for everyone around the world, and what’s worse is trying to find peace in staying home for 24 hours a day. Tensions in the household may rise when you and your partner are cooped up for so long together. Yes, these are the ones who you want to spend forever with, but you didn’t think it’d hit you this hard, huh?

Both of you might want to rip each other’s arms off by the end of this quarantine, but know that this too shall pass. Do not let fear or worry creep into your homes. Spend this time getting to know one another once more, and give each other the space you both deserve.

50 Self Care Quotes About Putting Yourself First

The key to loving someone else is to start by loving yourself.

There are many times in our lives where we give our family, friends and significant others more love than we think we can produce. Sometimes we give so much and don’t bother to expect anything back.

You are not the only person who has forgotten to love the most important figure in life: you. We become wrapped up in trying to help others and give them an immense amount of love that we forget to check in on ourselves from time to time. Self care is important — actually the most important. The moment where we neglect our own mind and emotions is the day where the storms will constantly hit home.

The reason you may fall short of taking care of yourself is beyond the stigma of “not loving ourselves.” Life gets in the way, especially when you’ve got a family to look after and a job that demands your attention 24/7.

There is no reason to push yourself beyond your limits. Everyone deserves a chance to sit down and breathe for a moment. Without caring for yourself, there are a lot of mental and physical strains that will prevent you from living the life you deserve.

You may become stressed out, anxiety-filled, and plain out exhausted from the most simple activities. When you forget about yourself and tend to other’s needs, who is there to care for you? Practicing self-care is crucial during any time in our life.

Start by waking up every morning and doing a 15-minute yoga session. Look in the mirror and tell yourself three things you admire! These may seem cliche and of course, you are not obligated to do anything you do not want to do. However, it may be for the best to start learning to love and appreciate you no matter what is going on.

Our collection of the best self-care quotes are powerful reminders to love yourself despite the things going on around you, and to put yourself first.

1. An act of survival.

“I have come to believe that caring for myself is not self-indulgent. Caring for myself is an act of survival.” — Audre Lorde

2. Do not forget your neighbors.

“As you grow older, you will discover that you have two hands, one for helping yourself, the other for helping others.” — Maya Angelou…

50 Quotes About Fashion To Keep You Stylish While You Work From Home

Just because you work from home doesn’t mean you can’t be fashionable.

Spring is finally here, and usually, that would mean we see lots of new and upcoming trends — but due to the coronavirus COVID-19, many of us are holed up at home in quarantine. But luckily for us, the internet and social media have become a great place for people to share style inspiration and outfit ideas for both work and leisure — and now that you’re working from home, it’s a better time than ever to experiment with some new work styles that are both comfortable and functional.

Despite this, many trends have made people ditch their own creative style in order to fit in and get online likes. The sad truth is that everyone has the potential to be stylish, but when we feel pressure to imitate whatever is considered mainstream, we become cookie cutters.

This has been going on for so long that many people no longer have relationships with the clothes they wear and more of an obsession with what other people think. When this happens, trends become tacky and unoriginal. After that, the trend dies, and the cycle continues.

Individualism plays a huge role in fashion because that is what has created the biggest most influential fashion houses we see today. It’s all about breaking the rules and putting your own personal signature to what you wear. There’s nothing wrong with being inspired by others or wanting to incorporate something new into your wardrobe. However, it’s important to remember the most important factor in your style — your individuality.

The golden rule in fashion is that there are no rules. So if you’re feeling like your lacking some fashion inspiration while you work from home, check out our collection of the best quotes about fashion to keep you inspired when you’re trying out new styles this Spring.

​​1. Be yourself.

“Just be true to yourself, and listen as much as one is able to to other people whose opinions you respect and look up to but in the end it has to come from you.” — Anna Wintour

2. Simplicity is a statement.

“I like things simple.” — Valentino Garavani
